Each state correctional facility is required to pass 100 percent of the 62 mandatory standards and 98 percent of the non-mandatory standards. Every department in the facility is responsible for showing proof they are meeting those standards through its practices.

The facility's official score is 98.43 percent.

Miami Correctional Facility was first accredited by the American Correctional Association in 2004. With this accreditation comes the responsibility of meeting the standards and passing a reaccreditation audit every three years. The facility passed its last reaccreditation in 2012. This is the first year of the next cycle. MCF will go through its next accreditation in 2015.
